Vivo recently launched the Z6 (or V1963A), a phone designed around the dual-band 5G-capable Snapdragon 765G SoC with Android 10 and an 8GB RAM variant. So far so normal for 2020: however, it seems the OEM is about to release what seems like the same device but with a different chipset.
Therefore, given its model number (the "vivo V1962A"), it seems this is a new variant of the Z6. So far, it exhibits slightly better single-core scores compared to the V1963A on this benchmark, although the older phone generally has better multi-core results.
However, additional rumors suggest the "V1962A" will be called the S6 on its release. It would be reasonable for Vivo to cover all its novel SoC bases this year - although it does in fact have a pre-existing 980-based X30 smartphone series. Then again, this may be a convincing basis for this new Geekbench listing to really be the S5's successor on its launch.
